A Telephone Strike Just Doesn't Make Sense Telephone wages now are as high or MgHer tHaivthe general community level of wage rates for comparable work. Telephone people represented by the Union have had six general wage increases since 1941, representing an average increase of over 75 per cent in wage rates, which is considerably greater than the increase in living costs. Telephone people have good working conditions. Their work is steady and they have 6 holidays and 1, 2 and 3 weeks vacations each year with pay, depending on length of service. Telephone people have sickness benefits and pensions, with all costs paid by the Company. The Union is demanding- increases in wages of from $12 a week to as high as $35 a week, which would result in an average increase of $17.10 a week or an increase of 42"^ cents an hour for all employees of the Company represented by the Union. Union demands total $30,000,000 a year. This is equivalent to an average increase of $2 a month for every telephone, including extensions. We are doing everything we can to avoid a telephone strike and still be fair to the users of telephone service who, in the final analysis, pay the wage bill. It is the earnest conviction of the Telephone Company that uninterrupted telephone service is a paramount responsibility of both the Company and all its personnel. In the event of a strike, we will urge all employees to recognize their responsibility to the public and stay on the job. If there is a strike, please make long distance calls only/in emergencies and use the local service as little as possible. Your understanding and co-operation will be greatly appreciated.
